On vacation

Meet and greet

My name is Susanna Averpil. I'm working as a User Experience Designer.

What does that mean? Well, interaction design, in sense of human-computer interaction, is about shaping things for people’s use. It's about satisfying the needs and desires of the majority of people using a product or service. That said, an interaction designer has to keep human behaviour, emotions, business goals and layout in mind to succeed.

Since 2008 I have been working in agencies in Stockholm and New York with customers like Electrolux, SAS, M&M, Bonnier, Pernod Ricard, Telia, Volkswagen, PwC, MTV and the Royal Opera. I went to Hyper Island and is a certified Scrum Master.

I am passionate about creating solutions that are simple and fun to use. To make something difficult easy. I'm used to work in agile processes with teams and I love to be close to the development. Continuously I want to make user tests and prototypes to ensure we find the best solution. I’m happiest when I get to co-create with like-minded in an open and playful atmosphere.


Surprise me, I love surprises

It's important for me to constantly get new impressions and surprises to evolve as a designer and person. I have been practising music for almost my whole life. I have a great interest in film music and during 2017 I took a MasterClass in film scoring with Hans Zimmer. I love to spend time in my home studio and other than that, I’m continuously working to get my smart home even smarter. Next step is to get fresh coffee in the morning without leaving bed!
